Advanced Design Projects at the DiK

In the project work Advanced Design Project changing problems from the field "Virtual Product Development" are dealt with by an interdisciplinary team.

An overview on current offered topics is available here.

In the winter semester 2002/2003 the event Advanced Design Project – Virtual Product Development was offered the first time as a project placement. It is concipated for students of engineering as an interdisciplinary team work in cooperation with industry during two weeks. Therefor a comprehensive construction or systematical problem from engineering has to be solved independently by an interdisciplinary team, by means students of different specialisation. Initial point here is the idea of process chains by applying methods of CAD-modelling, FEM-calculation and MKS-simulation.

  • Erfassung und Darstellung des Produktentstehungsprozesses mit Hilfe der formalen Methode zur Prozessspezifikation SADT

    2020/05/12

    Advanced Design Project (ADP), Advanced Research Project (ARP)

    A process is a sequence of events and is described by a series of activities. Processes occur in connection with technical systems or products in various forms. In the context of this ADP/ ARP, the process of product creation is to be examined and discussed in detail.

  • Konzept zum Datenaustausch in verschiedenen Simulationsdomainen

    2020/04/23

    Masterthesis, Bachelorthesis, Advanced Design Project (ADP), Advanced Research Project (ARP)

    If the real product is composed of a multitude of components that interact in a complex way and are controlled by a number of complex physical laws, then it should also be possible to create a virtual product consisting of a number of different physical (software) models.

    Currently, existing models of the FESTO MPS 403 plant have been developed in Plant Simulation, Excel, MSC ADAMS and Siemens Nx.

  • Potential von Hardware/Software/Model in theLoop (HiL/SiL/MiL) in Industrie 4.0

    2020/04/23

    Masterthesis, Bachelorthesis, Advanced Design Project (ADP), Advanced Research Project (ARP)

    In mechanical and plant engineering, HiL usually connects a PLC to a physical model of a plant via a fieldbus. If embedded systems (model) are simulated in a loop together with the environment model, this is called MiL simulation. The created model of the software or SiL is converted into the code that can be understood by the target hardware. This code is executed on the development computer together with the simulated model instead of running on the target hardware as with HiL.

    The aim of this thesisis to determine the potential and benefits of HiL/SiL/MiL as the technological basis for Industry 4.0 by means of demonstrations and sample programs.

  • Konstruktion und Entwicklung einer individuellen additiv gefertigten Kurbel für ein Fahrrad

    2019/11/29

    Advanced Design Project (ADP)

    Additive manufacturing processes are primarily suitable for manufacturing individualized components in small batch sizes. Bicycle components can be freely selected and combined to maximize the comfort of the cyclist. Crank sizes can also be selected frequently, but only a few manufacturers offer very large or very small sizes. For the production of an individualized crank, additive manufacturing processes can be used since, in addition to the cost-effective production of a batch size of 1, further optimization of the component can be carried out with regard to weight or function.

  • Global Course: Design Thinking

    2019/11/19

    Advanced Design Project (ADP)

    As part of an international student project – supported by the IDEEA Association (International Design and Engineering Education Association) – the DiK department offers an international ADP. The project is carried out as teamwork with students from other globally distributed universities. A total of about eight teams from about 40 universities worldwide participate in this project. The students of the TU Darmstadt form a team with fellow students of other universities, which are divided after project beginning. Each team will consist of approx. 12 students (2 students per university).
